Uber to announce more details on its flying car project

By Faiming_low on 25 Apr 2017

Attached Image More information on Uber's flying car plans will be revealed at its annual summit which will be held in Dallas this week. Travel times are expected to fall greatly.

As reported by City A.M, the summit will allow the company to build awareness for its aerial technology and is spearheaded by Mark Moore, an advanced aircraft engineer that worked for NASA for 30 years. Moore was known to have caught the attention of Google Chief Executive Larry Page after publishing a paper about the feasibility of electric aircraft in 2010.

Uber's flying car program, which is dubbed Uber Elevate, will allow its users to get to places via 'vertiports' using Vertical Take-off and Landing aircraft (VTOL). Uber claims that these aircraft will cut travel time greatly as they are able to travel independently of a specific path, unlike buses and trains.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

Car Parking Home Design

 

So TR Building changed the design to include subterranean parking for an extra car. An industrial-strength car elevator safely takes a single car down to the basement level, allowing another car to park on top.
